Two years ago, at the Solny Square, the Wrocław multimedia artist Witold Liszkowski presented the festival audience with part of his project Common space – phenomenal art, that part inspired by Federico Fellini’s La Strada. This time, Liszkowski will invite viewers to his expressive urban cinema in the gallery alley, Jatki, hosted by the Association of Polish Artists and Designers. Inspired by Pętla (1957) by Wojciech Jerzy Has, the tenth festival’s artist-in-focus, Liszkowski will reconstruct in the urban space the film’s entire atmosphere of existential anxiety. The Noose – Personal Art is a visual interpretation of the dramatic internal monologue of the man played by Gustaw Holoubek. The project includes an outdoor exhibition of painting and large-scale projections associated with the presentation of music composed specifically for this event. The picturesque architecture of Jatki will become a screen for monumental false mirrors, reflecting the gaze of the addict. In pictures, we will find a multiplied labyrinth of spaces overlapping each other and subjected to principles of non-Euclidean geometry.
